2. At some point growing up, we wondered what religion we were really practicing

My family: *Goes to the temple for Buddha’s birthday*

Also my fam: *Goes to church on Sundays*

Dual religion, ganern?

3. All Chinese-Filipinos keep track of their “blood percentage”

“I’m 75% Chinese.”

“Oh, really? I look more Chinese than you and I’m only 50!”

It's kind of silly, really. But we pretty much know our whole family tree.

4. When February rolls around, your non-Chinoy friends start asking you for tikoy...


And mooncake in November too. But honestly, we don’t blame you. Tikoy and mooncake are 💣

6. Besides red envelopes, we also have red shirts/ outfits ready for birthdays...

8. Not all of us believe and practice feng shui, but tend to pay attention to our Chinese zodiac

FYI, the Pigs are supposed to have "digestive problems" this year. (Good luck nalang sa atin, mga bes.)

9. One of the things people are most curious to know is if you have a “Great Wall”

“Dude! Ano na? Did you go out with her?”

“Deins pre, may Great Wall siya eh.”

13. Strangers assume you don’t know how to speak Tagalog


Then people talk about you RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU thinking you don't understand. Except HELLOOOOO naiintindihan po namin sinasabi mo, kuya!! 🙄

14. There’s a tendency to get asked if you’re related to another person with the same last name

There has to be at least 123456789#$%* other unrelated Tans within a 10-mile radius.
